5 Easy Lifestyle Boosts to Try for Yourself

If you want a feel-good boost for your body, you can always do the basic “work out more” or “eat healthier” thing, but how many times do we actually carry through with it?  And how long do we actually keep it going when we do?  Here are a few lifestyle boosts that are easy to keep up with and will benefit both your body and mood!

  • Drink more water. Chelsea Crockett - Water I’ve always heard this and thought “yeah, yeah, yeah, whatever,” but it really pays off and makes your body feel all-around better!  Carry around a reusable water bottle with you wherever you go and you won’t even realize how much water you’re drinking throughout the day.
  • Make daily to-do lists.  Checking off tasks on a to-do list is scientifically proven to boost your mood.  It gives you a feeling of accomplishment and success even if it’s completing something super small!
  • Stick to a bedtime and wakeup time.  Once again, science proves that this will benefit both your mind and body greatly.  You’ll feel less tired and more motivated to take on the day!
  • Start your day with a cup of coffee and some time with God.  I know for me, starting the day out by talking to God refreshes me more than anything (and some caffeine doesn’t hurt either!).
  • Don’t use your phone an hour before bed.  Your phone screen gives off blue light that actually keeps your brain awake and alert.  So when you lay down and play on your phone to “make yourself tired,” it’s actually doing the opposite!

I hope you consider giving these a try!  With a little determination, you can make all of these lifestyle boosts an everyday habit!

How to Beat Bad Feelings

Every once in a while, we all have those days where we can’t get out of a slump.  Whether we’re tired, grumpy, overwhelmed, etc., it’s sometimes hard to snap out of the mood we’re in, no matter how hard we try.  Here are a few different ways you can beat the bad feelings that are bringing you down!

  • Feeling tired? Although you most likely just want to stay in bed, get up and get moving!  I suggest chugging some water and fueling your body with a snack that’s healthy and will give your body a boost.  If you absolutely need a nap, only allow yourself to sleep for 20-30 minutes for a quick recharge!
  • Feeling insecure? Instead of thinking negatively, write down a list of characteristics that you love about yourself.  Change your focus from popularity or appearance and think more about your personality and the people you surround yourself with that love you more than you know!
  • Feeling stressed out? Between school, homework, and a social life, this is an easy mindset to slip into.  Take a deep breath and prepare yourself for the work you have to do. It helps me when I break down all I have to do into smaller pieces. This way, your work will present itself more manageable and less overwhelming.

I hope these tips help you snap back into a better mood ASAP! 🙂

Love, Chelsea

Tears are a part of life!  Whether you’re crying because of good or bad news, because you’re sad or happy, or because you just saw The Fault in Our Stars, tears can be tough to avoid!  If you’re an overly emotional person, then you know exactly what I am talking about!  What about that time you cried at a wedding, but had to look presentable for pictures afterwards?  Well, no worries!  In a few simple steps, you can disguise your crying, puffy eyes!Chelsea Crockett- garnier anti puff eye roller

Before applying makeup, use a cool gel de-puffing eye roller under the eyes.  This will immediately wake them up and prepare them for makeup.  If your eyes are red, then use a green toned primer to counteract the redness.  You can also use a brightening primer to make your eyes look more refreshed.  Next, using liquid concealer, apply a light layer to your under eyes for a smooth finish.  No one will even know you’ve been crying!  Reapply your mascara and you’re good to go!

Next time you find yourself crying, don’t panic.  With makeup, there is always a solution!

Love,

Chelsea
